A comparative study was made of the locomotory and feeding activities between a small shrew (Blarina brevicauda) with a high metabolic rate which lives in temperate climates and a large shrew (Suncus murinus) which has a lower metabolic rate and lives in warm climates. Blarina consumed more food in less feeding time and was less active during a 24-hr period than Suncus.
